How to Apply Nail Polish Strips- Tips for Perfect Application and Extended Wear

Before diving into the detailed steps how to apply fingernail polish strips, it's important to understand that following a certain process will not only make the application smoother but also extend the lifespan of your polish strips. By paying attention to the preparation and application stages, you can make sure your nails look professional and the design stays intact for as long as possible. Here is a guide to help you:

  1. Prepare your nails: Start by ensuring your nails are clean, dry, and free of any old polish. Use a nail file to shape your nails to your desired style. Push back your cuticles if needed and remove any hangnails or peeling skin around the nails. If you have acetone available, use it to give your nails a final wipe. This will remove any remaining oils or residue that could interfere with the adhesion of the nail strip.

  2. Choose the right size: These polish strips are very thin so as to avoid bumps and bubbles under the strips after application-- to avoid tearing them, remove each nail from the sheet slowly and gently.  Each nail polish strip kit comes with a variety of sizes. Match each strip to your nail to find the right fit. The strip should cover your nail completely but should not touch the skin or cuticles. If none of the strips fits perfectly, opt for a smaller size rather than a larger one, and trim the strip if necessary.

  3. Apply the nail polish strips: Peel the strip from the backing, being careful not to touch the adhesive side too much. Align the rounded edge of the strip with your cuticle and smooth the strip over your nail, starting from the base and working towards the tip. Press firmly to ensure it adheres properly and there are no air bubbles.

  4. Shape and trim the excess: Once the strip is applied, you can use the nail file to remove the excess. Hold your nail file parallel to the surface you are working on and file in a downward motion. This will prevent lifting the edge of the strip.

  5. Seal with a topcoat: For extended longevity of your nail polish strips, apply a clear topcoat. This will protect the strip from potential chipping or peeling and will provide your nails with a shiny finish. Allow the topcoat to dry completely before doing any activities that could potentially smudge or damage your nails.

With a little patience and attention to detail, your nails can look as if they were done by a professional, right from the comfort of your own home. Enjoy your manicure!
